  1. Increase PhotoBook Options

    I recently created a photobook for my daughters first year through Lifecake. I love the fact that you can do this straight through the site as it makes finding the right photos in the right order nice and easy.

    Sadly I did find the customisation extremely restricted (layout, text, backgrounds etc) and the final book was leaning on the expensive side compared to other sites such as Photobox etc.

      Very frustrating, would it be something that would work with in the future? ''

        • Include adding the dates of the photos in the new photobook

          ''the previous photobook let you display the dates and captions from your pictures in the book, in fact it did this automatically. I'd been through captioning pictures, but the new book doesn't show any of these, or the dates which is one of the key reasons why i'd use lifecake for a photobook over another provider. ''

          • Your new photobooks

            Hello,

            I just wanted to give you feedback on your new photobooks. We have ordered 4 in the past and have had no issues with the way of doing it but I have just ordered another one and I don't like the new software for creating them. We order them for an elderly relative and basically want a book version of lifecake with dates and photo titles included but the new software doesn't pull the dates over and you can't include dates and titles on ALL of the layouts of the pages. We much prefer the way it was before!…

            • FIX all the issues with photobooks

              For the second year in a row I am about to download all my photos so that I can move them to another photo site to create my yearly photobooks. Last year I had gone all the way through creating the photobook and through some glitch with the website I was unable to order. This year I reached the max number of photobook pages when I was only halfway through a year of photos. I love lifecake for its photo sharing but really wish you would get all the problems out of the photobook creation. I am about to go…

                  • Photobook Customization

                    Hello,
                    I love the Lifecake app and one of the reasons I chose it is due to the capability of creating a photobook. However, after using the app for several months now, I realize that there are significant limitations with the photobooks. You can only put one picture per page and there is a cap at 100 pages. I would like to do a photobook of my son's first year of life, but am not able to do one with the current limitations. Are you going to expand the photobook options to allow multiple pictures on one page and additional…

                    • Able to order photo book/photos from the App

                      Be able to create your photo book (or even prints) using the app from your phone.
                      I do not have a computer to create a photo book on, I'm sure others are in the same boat too. Plus, it would be easier! :)

                        Hello, thank you for your feedback.

                        We are very happy to let you know that the prints are now available from the Apps and now the photobook option is also planned!

                        Hope you enjoy using Lifecake,

                      • Add multiple shipping addresses for photo books.

                        There is only one option for billing / shipping so I had to order a photo book to my house which I will then have to ship to someone else. This doesn't make sense, and is too time consuming. Plus with the holiday's it may not make it in time. what if I wanted to order the same book to several people?... would be nice to add this feature. It's pretty basic after all.

                        • Please make your books more customisable, with the option to include all content!

                          Hi!
                          I'm a big fan of the look and functionality of the LifeCake website and app! Ultimately, I'm looking to print content in a book though, so I'm still waiting on some features and hope you'll consider adding them in the future. Specifically, it'd be great if all content, including stories and comments, could be included and there was an option for multiple pictures/stories per page.
                          I recently stumbled across My Social Book and would love being able to print books of a similar look from LifeCake. Do you think your books will deliver similar features in the future?

                            Hi, Johana! So sorry for the delay in responding, but we’re glad you’re enjoying the app and Website.

                            We do want to provide more options in our photobooks in the future for sure. Right now we’re focusing on customer requests within our app and Website, though, so we’re unsure when we will have this. But we will update this as soon as we do.

                            And in the meantime, just so you know: we have an option on our Website in Settings to ‘Download all’. With this you can download all your content – in full quality and in monthly, organised folders – so you can still print books on other sites in the time being.

                            Thanks for your patience and your feedback!

                          • Family members order books

                            I think it would be neat that there could be an option to make a photo book made by one family member could be seen by others if they wanted to. I have family members who have seen my photo books and wanted one like it but instead of me ordering it they could have the option to view it and order it themselves.

                            • An automatic populate for the hardcopy book that can be purchased.

                              Each page is essentially a screen grab of how each date is already presented on this great app. Setting the start and end dates defining the size of the book. A beautiful, easy to create gift for non tech savy family...in my case great/grandparents. Fantastic work... our whole family loves this facility. Well Done!

                              • Exclude low-resolution images from photo book layouts

                                If you add photos from e.g. Instagram, the photos are too small to print well in a photo book, so if you auto-populate (e.g. my child's first year) it puts all the images in but with warnings about print quality - you then have to remove each one rather laboriously. It might make sense to exclude any images which are under the required print resolution, or at least allow filtering by size in the drop down underneath the drawer.

                                  Thanks, Meg! We usually exclude lower-resolution photos by default, but do you have a lot more than 100? If it’s still showing lower resolution ones even when you have higher quality photos to choose from, then we might need to investigate to make sure we don’t have a bug.

                                  Please let us know if you get a chance. Thanks so much!

                                  • Make it possible to have a book in portrait orientation

                                    ''''Hi, is it possible to make the book in portrait orientation. Given the nature of the pictures on Lifecake, nearly all my pictures are portrait, and the cropping will be awful if I have to have everything landscape.''''

                                    • Automatically add photos when layout is changed

                                      ''The book seems to make all the pages one shot. Then if I choose 4 per page it wants me to drag the pictures manually but I have thousands so I don't want to do this.

                                      Any suggestions? Can you make it work?''

                                      • Automatically generate layout with most photo option for HD Book

                                        ''I'm having trouble with your photo books. It looks like it just puts one
                                        picture on each page. Can it auto-create a book for me using the layout
                                        with the most pictures per page? I'm really hoping I don't have to do this
                                        manually for each page.''
